Asked by crigglybits Jan 10, 2013 at 02:31 AM about the 1981 Chevrolet Corvette

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

G'day. When my headlights are turned on, my newly installed radio goes dead. It comes on
again fine when the H/lights are not operating!!   Also, I have slow indicators on the Drivers side
in comparison to the passenger side?!!  Are these both voltage problems?

Sounds like some wrong wires were used during the radio install.
